Line 1: Line 1:
 +(1) If tissues of two organisms are histocompatible,​ then grafts between the [[organism]]s will not be rejected. If, however, major histocompatibility [[antigen]]s are different then an [[immune response]] will be mounted against the foreign [[tissue]].
  
 +(2) Literally, [[tissue]] compatibility. With full histocompatibility between a donor and recipient, tissue can be transplanted without being seen as foreign and being attacked by the [[immune system]] of the recipient  ​
